Digital Business in Banken: Informationstechnologie — by Heinz Wings (auth.), Prof. Dr. Dieter Bartmann (eds.)

By Heinz Wings (auth.), Prof. Dr. Dieter Bartmann (eds.)

Keine Branche wird von technologieinduzierten Veränderungen unberührt bleiben. Insbesondere im Privatkundengeschäft von Banken kann das Meta-Nutzenpotential "Informations- und Kommunikationstechnik" eine überlebenssichernde Wirkung entfalten. Dazu bedarf es aber einer soliden strategischen foundation. Nur hierdurch können Chancen, die sich insbesondere durch die Verkürzung technologischer Innovationszyklen ergeben, rechtzeitig ausgeschöpft und Risiken weitestgehend vermieden werden.

Ausgehend von der Darstellung strategischer Herausforderungen, mit denen sich Banken heute insbesondere im E-Commerce und on-line Banking konfrontiert sehen, wird die für die Bankenbranche relevante Umwelt analysiert und prognostiziert. Zwei Delphi-Expertenbefragungen geben umfassende Antworten auf Fragen zum Technologie-Szenario und - darauf aufbauend - zu den Auswirkungen der neuen Medien auf das Retail Banking der Zukunft. Hierbei werden insbesondere Vertriebswege-Strukturverschiebungen hin zu elektronischen Vertriebskanälen prognostiziert, es wird ein Ansatz zur organisatorischen Einordnung des Direktvertriebs entworfen, der sowohl die Vorteile des Integrations- und Differenzierungsansatzes in sich vereinigt, und es werden strukturpolitische Konsequenzen abgeleitet, die sich aus dem neuen Umfeld für deutsche Banken ergeben. Zusammenfassendes Ergebnis der Umweltanalyse und -prognose ist die Identifikation von attraktiven Nutzenpotentialen für die Bankenbranche. Diese Nutzenpotentiale bilden jedoch für die einzelne financial institution nur dann eine strategische probability, wenn sie auf hervorragende Fähigkeiten (Strategische Erfolgspositionen) im Unternehmen treffen, mit denen sie rasch und kosteneffizient erschlossen werden können. Vor diesem Hintergrund erfolgt die weiterführende strategische examine mit Bezug auf eine Modellbank. Hierzu entwirft der Autor abschließend ein Strategiemodell, das - als Regelkreis ausgeprägt - für eine Modellbank angewendet wird. Ge
